Watch the Antlers Trailer now:
Antlers talk about children and their fears about a supernatural force. The movie is about two brothers who harbor a terrifying secret, which one of their school teachers is about to unravel. Child characters in horror movies exist for a while now, with even eighties horror movies like Child’s Play actually exploring that facet. In the postmodern world, horror movies like The Conjuring have child characters combating ghosts and demons. In fact, the upcoming supernatural adventure, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, have children play the iconic ghostbusters. Stranger Things was the first web series to feature children in the main roles in a horror web series. The latest movie in the horror franchise, The Conjuring 3, has the younger version of the Warrens, once again bringing children back to the forefront of horror storytelling.
